Potty Training Try-Outs

Joseph and I picked up a potty book yesterday and he seemed really into it, so today we read it and I put him in his super-cool train undies, to see what would happen.

What happened was nice trails of pee all over my floor. The first time he just peed in one place and then came to tell me about the "mess" when he was done. The second time he ran to me while it was happening, which was theoretically a step forward (except for cleaning, that is). But the third time he just sat in his high chair and went, and didn't even say anything (perhaps distracted by breakfast). Regardless, I decided that it was 3 strikes and out, since he never made anything happen in the potty.

Oh well, we'll just call it spring training, and give it another shot the next time I have the urge to clean the floors.

So funny, we just tried this out with my newly-turned 2 year old too. It ended very similarly. He totally understood the concept but just isn't ready yet! He stood peeing on the floor right next to his little potty and said "pee!!".

I've been told spring/summer is the best time to start potty training... so your LO can pee all over the grass in your back yard instead of your floors :)

Oh, if only we had a yard. :)
